WEATHER STRIPPING A NECESSARY FEATURE 
OF MODERN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION 

The importance of correct, carefully planned weather stripping cannot be 
stressed too forcefully. Today—with the prevention of heat leakage a neces¬ 
sary factor in insulation of modern building construction—the requirements of 
weather stripping also become increasingly exacting. It is therefore of prime 
importance not only that all windows and exterior doors be weather stripped 
—but that the stripping used should be of the construction and form best suited 
to each particular type of sash or door . . . and that it have the necessary 
strength and durability to assure years of satisfaction even under severe 
conditions. 

ITS IMPORTANCE WITH AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS 

As efficient weather stripping is an absolute requirement with air conditioning and temper¬ 
ature control operations, its importance is vividly accentuated. Naturally, the eccnomical opera¬ 
tion of air conditioning and heating systems depends, in good part, on the elimination of one of 
the greatest opportunities for air leakage—the leakage around doors and windows. 

ONE TYPE CANNOT SERVE ALL CONDITIONS 

As modern architecture demands a variety of sash and door constructions, it is obvious that 
one system of weather stripping cannot meet all requirements accurately and efficiently. It is 
therefore necessary that a system of weather stripping designed to meet the peculiarities of each 
type of window and door be used. On the following pages we illustrate the most widely used 
types and combinations of ACCURATE Metal Weather Strips—each type designed for particular 
requirements. In addition to these types, we manufacture numerous special strips for unusual 
requirements. We are also equipped to roll strip to individual specifications; the cost is moderate. 

TYPES OF MATERIALS AND QUALITY 

While zinc and bronze are the two metals most commonly used for metal weather strips, we 
can also supply our equipment in other metals such as brass, aluminum, stainless steel, etc. 

The zinc metal used is of purest quality, specially rolled and tempered to our own specifica¬ 
tion. In fabrication, the zinc is sheared and formed across the grain, thereby giving it consider-

ably more rigidity than regular ribbon zinc. The sheet zinc, in addition, gives greater resistance 
to extreme temperature changes. 

DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES 

The ACCURATE Metal Weather Strip Co., maintains, in connection with its Main Office at New 
York, an experienced engineering department. In addition, the company is nationally represented

EXTRUDED METAL WEATHER STRIPPING 
AND SADDLES FOR EXTERIOR SLIDING DOORS 


Weather stripping of exterior slid¬ 
ing doors has always presented diffi¬ 
culties. This is particularly true at 
the bottom of the door—where the 
ordinary type of saddle has not 
proved satisfactory, as it is not pri¬ 
marily designed for this type door. 

ACCURATE now offers an ingenious and 
practical type of extruded bronze saddle and 
weather stripping. Both were designed—in 
co-operation with architects—specifically for 
exterior sliding doors, and both have proved 
entirely satisfactory in actual uso under 
severe conditions. The weather stripping is 
.for the head, jambs and meeting stiles of the 
double sliding doors; details of actual typical 
installations sent on request. The saddles, for 
both single and double sliding doors, are 
shown full size on page 12.

"ACCURATE" SECTIONAL EXTRUDED SADDLES 

FOR EXTERIOR DOORS OPENING IN 

(Note: For One Piece Extruded Saddles See Page 14) 


10 


ADVANTAGES OF SECTIONAL 
EXTRUDED SADDLES 

"ACCURATE" Sectional Extruded Saddles 
combine features of flexibility not obtainable 
in the one piece type saddles. The extension 
members are interchangeable and carried in 
stock in standard widths from one inch to 
seven inches, with one inch variant, making 
it possible to extend or decrease the width 
of interior or exterior members to meet prac¬ 
tically all conditions. For example, the width 
of saddles 28B, 28C, 32C and 32B may have 
extensions of seven inches on each side of 
the main member or the entire saddle re¬ 
duced to four and one half inches. 

SELF-LEVELING PRINCIPLE—A most im¬ 
portant feature is the Self-Leveling Principle 
of the pivoted extension members. This is 
particularly important when floor and sill 
levels vary. Both extension members may 
be screwed in place or the inner extension 
member may be left loose and made to ex¬ 
tend over mats, runners or similar floor cov¬ 
erings. 


SADDLES FOR NORMAL 
EXPOSURE 


Under certain conditions we recommend a wide sad¬ 
dle, the width being governed by the entrance details. 

NO. 28B—This saddle, besides having the interlock¬ 
ing water stop, also has an outside groove which acts 
to stop rain from driving under the door. 

NO. 28C—This is similar in construction to 28B but 
does not have the outer water stop and should be used 
when doors are less exposed. 

NO. 32C—For use similar to 28B but has water groove 
and drainage holes in the middle of the center member. 


SADDLES FOR EXCEPTIONAL 
EXPOSURE 

NO. 34A—This saddle is designed so that any water 
which might be forced past the weather strip seal, drips 
into trough where it is drained out through con¬ 
veniently placed weep holes. 

Alternate: Center member S15 may be used instead 
of SI3 (see page 15), complete details on request. 

The extruded brass raindrip No. 15 is recommended 
for use in all installations for doors opening in.

Odd floor and sill conditions may require special 
treatment. Send details to us for study and we will

before frames and sash are made, often lessens the 
cost of construction and produces a better job.
